1998 Peugeot Team Festina Replica

1998 Peugeot “Team Festina Replica”

This came in as a donation to the local coop. it was dirty , missing seatpost/seat and the Headset was destroyed. luckily the softer aluminum headset threads got destroyed and the fork threads were in great shape still. The wheels were completely wrong as they were 6 speed Freewheel ones and this would have had a 8 Speed Campagnolo Freehub setup.

I am placing this as a 1998 model as it has dual pivot Avanti calipers which were introduced in 1998.  Also it matches the Team Festina colors of 1998.

I have done some research on this bike and have not been able to find the matching model in a catalog.
